I too am a nurse for Nader, although I'm not voting for him this year. Did that in 2000, in Florida no less. I'm sorry. It's too important to waste a vote on Ralph this year. I agree with his stance on corporate malfeasance, pollution laws and most other issues.
I also think he should be allowed into the presidential debates to keep the other two honest. That won't happen, just like in 2000, because this country is a duopoly, run by parties that are opposite sides of the same coin. Unfortunately, the head on the Republican side of that coin is seriously flawed this year, and should be re-cast.
I'm not worried about Nader taking votes away from John Kerry. Nobody I know who voted for Nader last time is going to do that in 2004. The idea of another four years of Bush is so scary that they'll vote for the person most likely to defeat him. The Republicans are the ones who should worry. I believe a lot of principled conservatives will not be able to stomach pulling a lever for this radical now in the White House. This summer will see more revelations and actions that will disgust the McCain-type Republicans. They won't vote for Kerry, but the WILL vote for Ralph. My prediction is Kerry 57%, Bush 40%, Nader 3%, with 2% of that being registered Republicans and 1% being people who reject the two-party system.
